  1. Tooth Re-Contouring

Tooth re-contouring is also known as odontoplasty and it is ideal for people who have uneven or misaligned teeth. This procedure reshapes problematic teeth so that they blend in well with the others in the set. To perform this treatment, the dentist uses a tool to carefully remove some part of the tooth’s enamel. Dentists can adjust the height of taller teeth through re-contouring treatments. Although it is a very safe procedure, patients have to think twice before undergoing tooth reshaping because the dentist will remove tooth enamel, thereby reducing the thickness of the tooth. Enamel doesn’t grow back so if the tooth is rendered very thin, the dentin can be exposed leading to tooth sensitivity.

  1. Tooth Alignment

Orthodontic appliances that are used to correct teeth aren’t invasive. They rest on the surface of your teeth, helping them to move into the desired position. There are several types of braces available today from metallic wires to clear plastic trays like Invisalign . The only downside to this form of treatment is that it takes at least one year to see a difference. Patients who have recently removed their braces also have to use retainers to secure the teeth in their new position. Invisalign Braces can also correct an overbite, under bite and cross bite so they’re helpful in dealing with misaligned jaws.

  1. Teeth Whitening

This is another sought after cosmetic procedure that promises you a great smile. Teeth whitening treatments brighten your teeth with the help of bleaching agents like hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. They offer great results by removing stains on the surface of the teeth. Patient’s who’ve undergone professional teeth whitening treatments have to repeat the procedure after a year in order to prolong the results. Those who choose to do it at home have to repeat the treatment more often because DIY home whitening kits lack high concentrations of the bleaching chemical.

  1. Veneers and Crowns

Dental veneers are shells that are custom designed to sit over one or more teeth. They add aesthetic value to your smile by covering cracks on the enamel or discolouration. Crowns, on the other hand, are custom-made caps that cover a tooth that has been severely decayed or one that has undergone a root canal procedure. Porcelain crowns are available in many shades so the dentist will select the best match for the patient. If the patient undergoes tooth whitening after fitting a porcelain crown, the shade of the crown will differ from the rest of the teeth because bleaching agents don’t work on porcelain.
